I was really disapointed by this book. It had to much swearing for my taste. Also I found the use of a futuristic setting to be forced. The story would have worked just as well in the present day and the futuristic world the author created lacked imagination.
Yes. Every time I listen it feels like the first time.
Eve. She is everything a woman wants to be. She is smart, dedicated, strong (mentally and physically), and beautiful.
She is Eve Dallas!
This is, hands down, my favorite series.
Yes, I prefer audio to better than print most of the time. These are explicet scenes if you prefer not to hear them outloud.
Everything. There is not one thing I haven't like about Nora Roberts since I read her first book and feel in love with reading. The future is so much fun in this series. Its a little hookie at first - but some of the gadgets are too cool. As always, the dialouge between characters is what makes the book and the series
The best ever! Keep listening...
It wasn't so enjoyable as disturbing.
The author wrote it so well that I couldn't stop listening to it.
We drive a lot and enjoy a storey that really passes the time, this was great
Enjoyed the story line and characters
This was the first audiobook I really ever listened to from beginning to end and I really enjoyed it. The narrator brought the characters to life and made the story exciting and full of suspense.
I believe that I am hooked now and I want to listen to many more!
This was my first JD Robb book. I was hoping for better. The future is a cold place despite an abundance of new technological gadgets. There are friendships but no real community. The families mentioned don't share lives. Personal autonomy is the ultimate good.
The story line is no better. The reader isn't brought along as the crime is being solved. And when the perpetrator is finally revealed, his/her (don't want to give away the ending) political pespective is exactly opposite of the good detective.
The characters use ugly language often. And the girls always beat up the boys.
I bought the first three books of this series at a 3 for 2 deal. After the first book I have to say that it didn't live up the my expectations. The series receives a lot of positive feedback but its first installment simply didn't convince me. I'm not too eager to continue. Had I not bought them already I wouldn't read them.
The story starts out very good though, the introduction of the characters, the futuristic setting and the crime case all fit perfectly together. But all too soon Eve's past get's involved with the murder case and this is were it started to irritate me. It was less of a crime plot than a woman-needs-to-face-her-past story. Her relation to the mysterious Roarke, obviously a major character in the series, was unrealistic in both, professionally and emotionally.
And the writing isn't consistent: Some chapters are brilliantly structured while others feel like a student's homework.
The narration is OK.
Daily commuter relying on Audible to keep awake. I need excitement! If something crazy doesn't happen in the first 20 mins I'm done!
The series and characters are interesting and the narrator has a wide range of voices and accents to pull from, however I didn't like that this series is taking place in the future and some of the references are weird. Not much for sci-fi, and a mixture of sci-fi detective was not to my liking.
Totally addicted to Audible.
Though I have loved Nora Roberts for years, I have resisted the JD Robb books because I am just not into futuristic stories. But having given in to one, I find I am now hooked and will no doubt read the entire series. A fun way to spend some time.
